canada. >> the cliche that young people are liberal and ultra conservative is wrong. but it is true now. and that highlights the challenge. what they need to do is figure out a way to go make a kind of small government market economy-based case to young people, without turning them off. chris: could the cheap investment be a younger candidate like rubio? >> i don't think so. chris: when we come back, the second obama nomination, is it as significant as his first? k o. that's more than the population of new york city, chicago and los angeles combined. you can make a difference in your community and help end childhood hunger... the more you know. chris: welcome back. this week's big question, is the second obama inauguration as significant as the first? joe klein? >> it's more significant for republicans because they now know they are a minority party. but we won't have 2 million people in the mall tomorrow. >> fewer people. but if he hadn't been re-elected it would have been very significant that the first black president was only a one-termer. so the fact he's re-elected is important. >

sound cliche but talk about a nanny state? and you know, not to be unsympathetic this goes w too far. and not only are the floodgates of litigation now going to be wide open, you about this opens up a pandora's box, neil. what is next? is long hair will be considered a disability? short hair? i mean we can not allow this to take place. neil: what is your big worry? what is your big worry? what will happen? >> let me put it to you like this, food allergies are not, excuse me, they are individualized unlike other disabilities rightly recognized by the ada, deafness, blindness. people paralyzed and wheelchair-bound. with food allergies there are thousands and thousands and thousands of them. how are restaurants, schools, places of public accommodation ing to be required to accommodate each and every individual's allergies? it is not plausible. its going to be way too burdensome and costly. ultimately it is going to drive businesses to shutdowns and schools to stop providing food to their students. neil: nicole, haven't we already seen something like this already going on at schools?

-- demystify, to move beyond the clichÉs about winners and losers, saints and sinners, about the wisdom and courage of the greatest generation. to tell a different story not a true story based on all the evidence we can find. the life of joseph p. kennedy was, for me, sort of antique fun house mirrors, which, if i look at long enough, would reflect back to me, often an indistinct distorted form, images of events, people, places, which organized and arranged the story of the 20 century america. joseph p. kennedy was a delegate type figure. he was everywhere. from world war -- he was born in 1888, lived through world war i, the roaring '20s, was in hollywood at the moment of transition from silent films to talking films. was on wall street during the boom and bust. worked as part of the franklin roosevelt campaign team, was the first chairman of the securities and exchange commission, the first chairman of the maritime commission, the first irish-american to be ambassador to the court of st. james, to great britain. and the father of a president, and attorney general, a senator, th

all had to be together and keep being together. you know, the most obvious cliche that comes to mind, and he would have put it more articulately and more memorably is to not let the perfect be the enemy of the good, not miss the forest for the trees. these are not the most innovating or exciting sort of messages, but it's very important to have a few people at or near the top of the conservative movement's leadership who believe in and preach these things and who ask people, ask their fellow activists and conservative intellectuals to remain focused on the need to win a majority of the american people and to govern. "national review," as a very intellectual magazine throughout its existence -- and i think probably even more so in its early years, the '50s and '60s -- very much needed, i think, bill buckley, managing editor priscilla buckley and every other major person there acknowledged that they very much needed a man just like bill rusher to serve as a political eyes and ears, as a political counselor, as a link between "national review"-type people. as rusher tended to put it to
